    Epyminia, welcome to TalkGraphics.

    The HTML <marquee> Tag is deprecated in HTML5 as it was often buggy.

    This CSS solution is directly applied to a Xara Text Column or Area without any need to use Placeholders, so avoiding HTML.
    The CSS could be put into a placeholder for easy use across different designs.

    CSS - Marquee.xar

    You can change the speed (10s == 10 seconds) and the direction as well as the width and position of the text.

    You can also include shapes with a Name htmlclass="Marquee".

    Hi Acorn, many thanks for your speedy reply.
    Unfortunately it is not quite what I am hoping for. I want to place a lengthy descriptive text article on a page and enable the viewer to scroll through it at their own pace, perhaps even going backwards if necessary.
    Very amusing to see your text scrolling sideways and I will certainly have a play with it when the pressure eases.
    Cheers

    E, try this: CSS - Scroll TextBox.xar

    Here is a rework of my first that doesn't scroll "sideways": CSS - Text Scroller.xar.
    If you hover, it stops.

    Or as a simpler method. just using a placeholder to load another html page.

    Egg, technically, an IFRAME is HTML I did not use it as Windows scroll bars inside one another look dreadful. CSS is more refined. jQuery is versatile. JavaScript is low level.
